by Chris Towers |

The Astros transferred reliever Josh Zeid to the 60-day disabled list Saturday, to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

Zeid is out for the season due to July foot surgery, so this move doesn't change anything. He finished the season with a 6.97 ERA in 20 2/3 innings of work.

MRI for Steve Pearce shows no oblique issue
by Chris Towers |

Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce underwent an MRI Saturday which showed no additional damage beyond a strained abdominal muscle, reports.

Pearce's MRI showed good news, in that he did not suffer an oblique or intercostals strain, which would likely cost him more time. He is not in the lineup for Saturday's game, but appears to be day to day at this point.

Jeff Locke sent down; should be back shortly
by Chris Towers |

The Pirates optioned pitcher Jeff Locke to Triple-A Indianapolis Saturday, in order to free up a spot on the active roster.

Locke has been a consistent part of the team's rotation since June, and should continue to be so moving forward. He will almost certainly be brought back to the majors when rosters expand in a few days, though it is not clear if this impacts his scheduled start Tuesday against the Cardinals.
